Risk Management Assessment

Tim Lister

By framing the questions explicitly in terms of a worst case; switching perspectives and allowing people to describe the best case; examining blame-free, blameworthy, and partial failures, and employing additional techniques, Tim Lister is able to overcome the hesitation that prevents most people in most companies from articulating many risks they are aware of.


Due Diligence for Mergers & Acquisitions

Steve Andriole

Get guidance in establishing and operating an IT Oversight Committee, and/or have Cutter's independent experts sit on your existing committee.


Project Chartering

An effective project chartering session is the best way to ensure that a project gets started correctly. Cutter's project chartering sessions help establish a project's team values, vision, mission, objectives, project community, measures of success, scope and boundaries, committed resources, and working agreements.


EA Maturity Assessment

Through a qualitative and quantitative evaluation of your architecture and organization, Cutter's maturity assessment program provides a relative comparison of the organization to industry norms and identifies strengths and areas needing attention.


Business Intelligence Strategy

Our Senior Consultants consider your business needs as well as your infrastructure requirements, and help you prioritize them based on criticality and potential return on investment (ROI). We'll help you develop a governance structure for your business intelligence initiative that includes prioritization, funding of projects, and resolution of conflict -- and we'll guide you through the necessary steps to develop an implementation strategy.


Architecture Review and Action Plan

The Architecture Review and Action Plan provides an in-depth evaluation of your enterprise's architecture. It takes an architectural approach to addressing specific questions and concerns that you may have. It is intended to clarify business, application, and technology discussions and help your organization make specific technology decisions.


IT Strategic Planning

Cutter Consortium will help you put a strategic planning process and a strategic plan in place.
